Fitness programs come and go almost as fast as diet programs. Anybody still following the South Beach Diet? CrossFit is one of those fads that has turned into a mainstream fitness routine for thousands, if not millions of Americans.
GoodHealth.com woke up early this morning; early enough for only the crickets to be awake, and made a trip over to The Combine/CSC Crossfit in far south Austin to observe what athletes do before the sun rises. Specifically, we were interested in Steven L. Henry, MD, who is in competition for one of Austin's fittest professionals.
Voting is open through May 25, 2012, and the results of the competition will be announced at our Final Event on May 30, 2012.
You may have watched the recent CrossFit Championships on ESPN. To get to that level you have to be in tip-top shape. I can't imagine anyone being in better shape than the athletes I watched this morning at the local CrossFit facility.
According to CrossFit, what differentiates them from other programs is that it "delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We've used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don't change programs."
